You shall make them for glory and beauty. 41 And you shall put them on Aaron your brother, and on his sons with him, and shall anoint them and ordain them and consecrate them, that they may serve me as priests. 42 You shall make for them linen undergarments to cover their naked flesh. They shall reach from the hips to the thighs; 43 and they shall be on Aaron and on his sons when they go into the tent of meeting or when they come near the altar to minister in the Holy Place, lest they bear guilt and die. This shall be a statute forever for him and for his offspring after him. The priests who served in the tabernacle were to be ordained and consecrated. They were to be servants of God. Do you feel you are called to serv

In the style of the ephod you shall make it—of gold, blue and purple and scarlet yarns, and fine twined linen shall you make it. 16 It shall be square and doubled, a span its length and a span its breadth. 17 You shall set in it four rows of stones. A row of sardius, topaz, and carbuncle shall be the first row; 18 and the second row an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond; 19 and the third row a jacinth, an agate, and an amethyst; 20 and the fourth row a beryl, an onyx, and a jasper.

They shall be like signets, each engraved with its name, for the twelve tribes. 22 You shall make for the breastpie

They shall make holy garments for Aaron your brother and his sons to serve me as priests.  5  They shall receive gold, blue and purple and scarlet yarns, and fine twined linen. 6  “And they shall make the ephod of gold, of blue and purple and scarlet yarns, and of fine twine

It shall be a statute forever to be observed throughout their generations by the people of Israel. I wonder what the significance of using olive oil and as described here, “pure beaten olive oil”? Why did the lampstand burn continually? I wonder if they kept it burning when they moved from place to place and how they moved it? This wasn’t an easy task for sure that they would create, build, and then move all the furnishings as well as the tabernacle itself. I think about moving from one house to the next ever 10 years or so and I can’

It shall be made with cherubim skillfully worked into it.  32  And you shall hang it on four pillars of acacia overlaid with gold, with hooks of gold, on four bases of silver.  33  And you shall hang the veil from the clasps, and bring the ark of the testimony in there within the veil. And the veil shall separate for you the Holy Place from the Most Holy.  34  You shall put the mercy seat on the ark of the testimony in the Most Holy Place.  35  And you shall set the table outside the veil, and the lampstand on the south side of the tabernacle opposite the table, and you shall put the table on the north side. 36  “You shall make a scre
